Greek Awards

Wilmington College’s Greek Life awards program Thursday (April 23) provided indisputable evidence that fraternity and sorority members are at the forefront of leadership in academics, service and philanthropy at Wilmington College.

Consider these facts: five Greek organizations had a cumulative membership grade point average of 3.0 or better for the spring 2014 and/or fall 2014 semesters and 122 individuals were named to the Dean’s List with GPAs of 3.5 or better for the past spring and/or fall semesters. That group also included 21 members with perfect 4.0 averages.

Hazing Policy

If you saw the 48 Hours show titled, “Campus Insecurity,” there were some compelling questions raised about how safe a college campus really is. Here are some answers to suggested questions from “Ask The Safety Basics: Questions To Take With You On College Tours” from cbsnews.com.

Hazing

Does the school have a policy on hazing? If so, how is hazing defined and to whom does the policy apply?

Yes. This policy applies to all student organizations. In accordance with Ohio law and Wilmington College policy, hazing by any organization is prohibited. Specifically, hazing is defined by law as “doing any act or coercing another, including the victim, to do any act of initiation into any student or other organization that causes or creates a substantial risk of causing mental or physical harm to any person.”

Hazing includes, but is not limited to:

  • Any brutality of a physical nature,
  • Forced tasks of servitude including errands and clean-up activities,
  • Forced or encouraged consumption of food, beverages or drugs,
  • Forced or encouraged calisthenics or other physical activity which could adversely affect the physical health and safety of the individual,
  • Forced or encouraged exposure to the elements,
  • Sleep deprivation,
  • Forced or encouraged exclusion from social contact,
  • Forced or encouraged conduct which could result in extreme embarrassment or loss of dignity,
  • Willful destruction or removal of public or private property,

For the purposes of this definition, any activity as described above which may be required for affiliation with or continued membership in, an organization is presumed to be “forced or encouraged” activity, the willingness of an individual to participate in such activity notwithstanding.

What are the guidelines on punishment for offenders of the hazing policy?

Student organizations found to be in violation of the College hazing policy may receive a range of sanctions, including probation status, fines, community service, educational sanctions, suspension of the group, or loss of recognition and association privileges as a College organization.
